The multimillion dollar contract to electrify the track for the Honolulu Rail Transit project has been awarded to Atlanta-based Siemens Corp.

The company did not release the dollar value of the contract awarded by Ansaldo Honolulu JV.

In an announcement this morning, Siemens said it will supply the rail system with 14 traction power DC rectifier substations at 750 volts and two tie breaker gap substations. The order also includes the emergency stop equipment at the metro depot and all stops along the 20-mile line.

Siemens Corp. is a U.S. subsidiary of the Munich-based Siemens AG, an electronics and electrical engineering company with 360,000 employees in 190 countries.
